Haremhab’s Tomb now open

The tomb of Haremhab, in the Valley of the King’s on Luxor’s West Bank, has been reopened following the installation of state-of-the-art equipment to control the rate of humidity within. The tomb is the first to have such technology installed in an attempt to reduce and control the rate of humidity and heat, which has affected the wall paintings in the past, leading to its original closure. A German organization, specialized in such technology, provided humidity-control equipment that were tested, following several years of scientific studies. A scientific team is now monitoring the efficiency of the equipment, in order to have it installed in all the tombs of the Valley of the Kings.
